About this product
- DescriptionIn the late 1800's Raleigh Rutherford Haynes, a farmer and store owner, introduced textiles to the Broad River Basin of Rutherford County, North Carolina. He was a visionary, who saw the potential for profit in melding locally-grown cotton and available water power. With his partners and investors, in only a score of years, he transformed the county into a place where new mills and towns provided homes and jobs for generations of workers. His ultimate project was the creation of the town of Cliffside on the lower Second Broad River, where he built a huge mill and a model village. This book is his story, and the story of Cliffside. Originally published in 1954, this is a revised edition, published as a preservation project by the Cliffside Historical Society.
- Author BiographyIna Fortune, born in 1888, daughter of a Rutherford County pioneering family, arrived in Cliffside as a teenager in 1904, just as the town and mill were burgeoning. In time she met and married Grover Cleveland Haynes, son of Cliffside's founder. As she raised her children, Hazel and Grover, Jr., Ina was active in the Baptist Church, organized and attended social affairs at Cliffside, and was a very prolific writer with regular articles in the local papers. She became the town's postmistress during the World War II years. After her husband's death in 1950, Ina wrote this biography of her father-in-law. She continued to be involved in local affairs until her death in 1963.
